Web Services Performance Problem

I am trying to use web services in our project in websphere server, In this we are using swing as client to connect the EJB, which is running thru web services. we are able to connect EJB and get the response from websphere server using web services. The below code is in EJB as business method
public Vector getData(){
Vector v = new Vector();
for(int i=0;i<20000;i++)
v.add("String");
return v;
}
I use SOAP RPC encoding and in the client side i use SOAP.jar to connect the web service and get the response.
but it takes around 8 seconds to get the response.
at the same time, i used below code in EJB as business method
public Vector getData(){
Vector v = new Vector();
for(int i=0;i<20000;i++)
v.add(new DataObject("String"));
return v;
}
public class DataObject{
String str = null;
public DataObject(String data){
str = data;
}
public String getData(){
return str;
}
public void setData(String data){
this.data = data;
}
}
here, i create object for my own DataObject class.
now i connect to this EJB, it takes double the amount of time to get the response.
Please help me, Is there any other way to increase the performance of web services?
Thanks,
Raja

20000 objects is a LOT to encode in XML and then decode on the client side. If I had to send 20000 strings, I would send them as an attachment - thus minimizing the amount of encoding and decoding. Adding attachment specifications to SOAP was one of the key decisions that widened the acceptance of Web Service.

Read chapter 13 of the Java Web Services Tutorial.

Unfortunately, that chapter won't help him in he's in WebSphere and using SOAP.jar, which leads me to believe he's on WebSphere 4.0.x (and thus Apache SOAP). Raja, could you please tell us what version of WebSphere you're working with, and whether or not you are using WebSphere studio?

OK, this article might help you out a bit -- but I'll warn you I've not tried it in the full 5.0 version.
However, my REAL recommendation is that you move PRONTO to WAS 5.02 and WSAD 5.1, which totally resolves the attachment issue by becoming JAX-RPC and SAAJ compliant (not to mention WAY faster).
